To A New Paradigm With FPB

Bow thruster

Hi y’all! I can’t see a bow thruster on your boat. Don’t you have one or do you have a retractable? If you don’t have one, why?
There is no thruster on Wind Horse. With twin engines this is not required. The FPB64 does have a bow thruster (fixed).

    I bet the fact your boat tapers toward the bow AND stern helps in docking situations where others with more winnebago-like lines might need one, don’t you think?

    Hi David: The shape of the canoe body does help maneuverability. Also helping is the huge rudder and 40 degree angle of attack.
